Vespa Woodblock Print

If you hear a summer buzz, it’s probably not the crickets around here, but the sound of motorbikes abound. It’s a favorite subject around here, as I’ve been experimenting with Vespa woodcut blocks for printing.  This one was printed with patriotic blue and red on Fabriano Rosa Spina.

Here’s another wonderful personalization of Vespa--a one day getaway to Ortovero Liguria, we captured this baby. Who would have ever thought of a real papier maché Vespa! Yes, it exists and I want one!
